The Mt. Kilimanjaro Marangu Route is a popular route on which nights are spent in huts and meals are taken in dining halls. It is the only route that ascends and descends using the same path and is often referred to as the “Coca-Cola” route. Hut accommodations are some of the main features of this route, offering the relative luxury of being able to sleep in covered lodging along the entire route. Mineral water, soft drinks, chocolate and beer are also sold at all the camps along this route.

The trek starts from the gate of Mt. Kilimanjaro National Park, about 50-minute drive from your hotel. The Marangu route passes through rainforests (which teems with birds and colobus and other monkeys), alpine meadows and lush vegetation (with giant lobelias and senecios) until you reach the snowy summit. At some spots along the route, you will have magnificent views of snow-laden peaks of Kilimanjaro, Kibo and Mawenzi.

Mt. Kilimanjaro climbing is composed of a number of crew which includes the chief guide, assistant guide, cook and porters. This professional group has undergone extensive training to ensure the safety and comfort of climbers during the challenging trek.

QUESTIONS AND ANSWERS Find answers to the most frequently asked questions about this tour.
  • When is the great wildebeest migration?

    The great wildebeest migration starts anytime between late April and early June. And if you are interested in seeing the grand spectacle of wildebeest crossing the Grumeti or Mara Rivers, you should plan your trip around late July or early August. However, it is important to note that the timing of herd movements can vary.

  • Are all taxes and expenses included in the price?

    The tour price is inclusive of all taxes. About the expenses, it depends on the type of expenses. Personal expenses, additional activities not in the “what’s included” section, alcoholic drinks, etc are not included in the price. Please read over the what’s included and what's excluded sections for more details.

  • Will there be oxygen available on this Marangu Route tour?

    Oxygen is not normally provided. ​If you need oxygen it can be provided at an additional charge of USD 35 per person. 

  • Is Tanzania a family-friendly safari destination?

    Tanzania is an excellent safari destination for families. The country has one of the most diverse wildlife populations in Africa, and there are countries with action-packed game drives that your children might enjoy. Furthermore, many of the destinations are quite affordable for family safari holidays. The only caveat is that Tanzania falls under Africa's malaria belt. Thus, traveling with children under six years of age is not recommended. Many safaris have age restrictions due to safety concerns.

  • Do I need a visa and passport to travel to Tanzania?

    You must present a passport that is valid for at least six months beyond the date of visa issuance to gain entry into Tanzania. The immigration officers would also require you to present a roundtrip ticket and show proof that you have enough money to cover the duration of your stay.
